” For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
Wisdom is defined as having the ability to discern inner qualities and relationships.
Wisdom of this world is foolishness to God, but heavenly wisdom is an invitation to dig deeper, search higher things of GOD, and aim to eternal perfection.
The wisdom of this world changes with times, and seasons, and cannot be trusted, but the wisdom of God is everlasting, unchangeable, eternally steadfast. No one can compare! One percent of human wisdom cannot even compare to the percentage of God. ” For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” 1 Cor 1:25
This wisdom cannot be taught by the highest masters of this world, and it cannot be explained by philosophers, wizards, and even theologians. To understand his ways, we got to experience God, and his ways, to know God is to follow his principles, and his precepts, and live as Jesus lived. Men cannot fully understand God, or his ways. His ways are higher than our ways, and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts.
“ For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
Human wisdom, and understanding is that which is taught by humans, and heavenly WISDOM is that which is taught by our heavenly master, whose ways, and thoughts, are unlike anything we can ever think or imagine in this world. The closest we can come to God’s wisdom, is to learn his ways through the bible, God’s HOLY WORD. When we pay respect to God, and reverence him in the details of our lives, we open the door to receiving guidance, and direction, that is available to us, at the sight of OBEDIENCE, from above.
Heavenly Wisdom is enabled through fear and reverence to God, not human knowledge, education, or experience, and is imparted to us, because of Obedience. Obedience moves GOD into action.
Men can teach us earthly wisdom, that will teach us to respond in a practical way of life, but it is GOD and GOD alone who can teach us knowledge, wisdom, and understanding, to respond in a supernatural way, THROUGH supernatural experience. When we are faced with a decision, or circumstance that practical ways can’t fix, or explain, it is a SURE sign that we ought to run to God, and seek for solutions from heaven, rather than seeking for solutions on the earth. Let us not rely upon human knowledge, but dig deep into his presence, and draw insight that flow directly from heaven, hidden deep within.
